Liam,

It's about time that 1980 got the due it deserves. It's really a great year with lots of energetic playing. It actually reminds me of 1977 in a way. (as 1979 with Brent reminds me of 1976). This show was my find of the year; I couldn't believe the lack of exposure.

The Alabama is probably the best version that I've heard. Lazy Lightnin>Supplication is one of those Garcia speedy versions. The 1st set ends with a powerful China>Rider and then of course the Caution Jam, yes it's a real Caution Jam...who cares what deadbase says.

While you're in the vicinity 5-10-80 may be one of the best shows I've ever heard and 5-8-80 at the Glen is a great show. I can go on and on with many other shows in 1980...how about the whole week of 8/31 to 9/6. Perhaps their best week ever?

Good call Liam.

Thanks for the kind words- It is weird how I have no idea how I came across this- I think I was just downloading random songs- songs I like of course from random shows off zephyr- found many a gem this way
